REALTORS’ Leadership Development Program: A Quote to Remember

I know Jim Tunney.


So, imagine my surprise to see him quoted on the mirror of the women’s restroom!


Jim and I go back 20 years to my early days of membership in the National Speakers Association. He is an esteemed leader in the speaking profession, and to this day, he is one of the most excellent professional storytellers I’ve heard.


The location was Malvern, Pennsylvania, where I was facilitating No-Panic Presentation Skills for Tri-County Suburban REALTORS’ Leadership Development Program. And yes, I did pull my phone out in the restroom to snap a photo of this quotation: “It’s the will, not the skill.” This is a truth I’ve been able to share with my son, who has been training for the upcoming cross-country season in this extreme heat. “It’s the will, not the skill” on days like these. Thanks, Jim Tunney.


And, by the way, Jim was in good company. On the other mirror was a quotation from Pablo Picasso!
